Weekend Video: Burnley “Rocky” Jones on breaking down barriers

KJIPUKTUK (Halifax). Burnley “Rocky” Jones reflects on growing up in the Marsh, a small African Nova Scotian community near Truro, being baffled by his first encounter with racism, facing hate, RCMP surveillance, and even repeated arson attempts throughout his life, and somehow coming out of it all keeping his humanity intact.

With apologies for the awful commercial that you may need to skip through to get to the talk…. It’s worth it, though.
